Police in Lewisham Borough are appealing to trace a man who has absconded from a mental health unit.

He was last seen wearing a dark coloured hooded top with gold, green and black colours down the arm, jeans and black trainers with white soles.
Taylor has links to the Catford and Chelmsley Wood, Birmingham areas.
Anyone who sees Taylor is urged not to approach him but call 999.
Anyone with any information on his whereabouts can contact police in Lewisham via 101 (or 020 7230 1212 if calling outside of London), or by tweeting @MetCC.
